and st. louis and st. louis city. in west virginia, they elected him governor, democratic senators, including reelecting mentioned who got 61% and yet the president topped out at 36% to 25% difference between joe manchin and the president spoke in west virginia. so just where to get your comments on ticket splitting in general and then maybe west virginia. >> i think you've got three different things in two different situations. unicom in missouri, let's face it, todd akin contaminated the environment and made it very, very hard for, you know, i think it didn't really help of the republicans in the state, and nationally for that matter. but the thing is in places like montana and west virginia, when, you know, you have democrats who could have told you on january 1 -- i'm sore, well, could have told you four years ago that president obama's going to be a liability in my state, and i'm going, i'm not going to have to put, there never will be any lack of distance between me and him at any point, and so there's no, you know, it's not like they have been cozying up to him and then comi
,000 homes. that's probably 300,000 people, the the size of a major american city. but we just don't know yet because of the inspections going on. we know huge numbers of houses are water logged. are their electrical systems gone, has there been structural damage, that takes almost a house-by-house inspection to determine, and we don't know enough yet. but flood insurance will have to live up to its promises and its commitments. that's legally binding on the government. how it has to be changed, there's been a lot of discussion about that, and it's one of the things we're going to have to look at as a result in the aftermath of sandy. >> maria? >> the makeup of the senate changed with this election, and i'm not talking about democrat or republican, but both with the election of so many women. and the most women, i guess, in history. could you just talk about that, what that means, what that means for the society and for the senate and what that might mean in the future for -- >> well, first, i think it's great, um, for both substantive and political reasons. when i was head of the dscc, i pre
. yes, and introduce yourself. >> good morning. my name is jack from traverse city michigan. in your very interesting exchange with a bass tournament in foreign about afghanistan, you make a very strong case that we need a political transition in 2014, but what i don't see in any other writings on this subject is why we need to to four years of combat operations and deaths to american soldiers and allied soldiers during that period. i do see that our soldiers are making any headway, other than trying to afghans, which more or less is working. and i don't see, i think they're making actually, they're going backwards. they are creating more animosity with the afghan people, so why can't we stand down earlier and this can she do that training and stop the combat operation? >> thank you so much. >> i wish we could but i don't think we can. and i think there's three things that our military is doing that need to be done. one is, you know, you can't train an afghan army if you're throwing them into the front line and putting them into combat before they're ready. so it takes time to train
. it is a misconception because if you look for example at the cities for the initiatives proposed earlier and the stakeholders from within the security establishment include a lot of others that week and strengthen the position in the security service that gives some of the proposals to the spenders living on wages or for these personnel. they include the right of the egyptian police officers for greater rights and you have to keep in mind the absence of of this level of manpower and as a worker contributing to the environment of lending itself to the idea that we have been seeing in egypt lately previous practices by the egyptian police, for example the fact that a lot of the police officers have to be on a certain rank and have to be kept on contract securing full time permanent employment status with protection. this is one of the conditions that actually makes it much easier on the superiors and senior members of the security establishment to basically pressure them into taking on questionable activities. if you don't pull the trigger then i went toward contract by the end of this yea
relations with israel, the role of the security council and in the city council in the u.n. almost everything important is at stake in this. this is the most critical and most dangerous situation that the administration will be facing in the next year. looking at in the wind while this year is critical we have to realize this isn't all about some misunderstanding or fixable problem with iran not to getting about its civil nuclear program or even its nuclear weapons program colliding with the international community. these are all manifestations of the long term confrontation that we and the rest of the region has with iran at least since the 1970's and this confrontation will go on regardless of whether we get a nuclear deal or have a strike to prevent iran from moving to that nuclear weapons capability. we are going to have to deal with this problem over the longer term just as we have the last 30 years because it flows from kuran's view of its role in the region and the inconsistency of the view with the view of the other countries in the region, our values and our role both in t
change than your opponent. tomorrow, you're going up in new york city where you're going to, i soon, see people who are still suffering the effects of hurricane cindy, which many people say is further evidence of how a warming globe is changing our weather. what specifically do you plan to do in his second term to tackle the issue of climate change? and do you think the political will exist in washington to pass legislation that could include some kind of attacks on our been -- some kind of tax on carbon? >> decant attribute any particular weather event to climate change. what we do know is the temperature around the globe is increasing. faster than was predicted even 10 years ago. we do know that the arctic ice cap is melting, faster than was rejected even five years ago. and we do know that there has been extraordinarily, there have been an extraordinarily large number of severe weather events here in north america, but also around the globe. and i'm a firm believer that climate change is real, that it is impacted by human behavior, and carbon emissions. and as a consequence i think we
an enormous immigrant population, and i can't even imagine what the city would be like without it in terms of the vibrancy and the excitement that we feel when we walk the streets of new york. so, you know, we have a long history of finding our way through these kinds of challenges and problems. and i believe that as long as we -- as long as we stick to our basic principles, and i do think we need to make some progress here in washington might do think that the government has reached a level of this functionality that is high even by government standards. >> we love numbers. >> some incredible amount of lightning strikes when the s. con. res. 70 leaves in another few weeks it will have passed fewer than half as many of the laws as any other congress in modern history. now you may say -- some people would say that is great. but i don't think so. i think we have a lot of problems and conagra's is paid to solve them and so i do think washington has improved its success rate but beyond that, we have a lot of advantages in this country so there are reasons. >> the dallas-fort worth seniors i wo
. he will discuss his latest novel and its take on the city of miami. plus he will answer questions from the miami audience sunday at 6 p.m. eastern on booktv on c-span2. >> where is sergeant dh today? >> so, we ended up following him after this plane ride for many months as i said, and he ended up injuring himself into a program at walter reed what it ended up using acupuncture, using meditation, using other techniques to wean him off of all the drugs that he was on, and through this program he actually was able to walk out of walter reed on his own two feet. so, you know, i really commend the military for two things, for one, for allowing us to tell this story, both good and bad, but for recognizing this problem by recognizing that there is this problem of overmedication and that they are looking for outside the box ideas and how to fix it. i mean, that's sort of the whole thesis of the film really, the metaphor of "escape fire" is the status quo isn't working and we need to start looking for outside the box ideas. >> more with matthew heineman, producer and director of "escape fi

were from the township were the airport for jakarta is located. jakarta is the fifth-largest city in the world. so what you had a change of the bird flu influenza so that it became easily transmissible among human beings, well, they would be no way to stop it because in 24 hours, people have been exposed to this would've flown to every corner of the world before anyone knew it had in fact become highly communicable. so i went out and bought was a long list of things. you go someplace and they say fix this. are we going to do this. when i give you any tools. just fix it. the thing in the back of my mind for than anything else, even if you can't fix it come you can't be asleep when there's a risk, even if it's a small risk and you can't quantify it, the place where you're serving is going to be the place that explodes the spanish influenza epidemic and you are sleeping you didn't do anything to identify it earlier on, put anything in place. so i didn't know what is going to do. i went out and we had some really highly, highly capable people and the country, also other people, usaid

to stop the opportunity for the massive migration from the country and the cities seeking employment with a lot of instability in the country they want to keep the growth up to the of this year of inflation as historical and they had a serious inflation and it was in commodities with a large part the typical chinese person's budget for food and energy much larger than here. so they are not happy with our extremely loose monetary policy and exporting inflation etc.. so i think that is an issue that i do believe they are capable of acting quickly at filling the hole in the bank's that is a much harder than we didn't do that and the president had a proposal and secretary geithner in 2009 the there's a gradual recapitalization of the banks they raised 300 billion of capital so they've got a more concentrated in the largest banks. we recapitalize. >> let's talk about the fed and the world bank for the second. central banks have pumped $11 trillion into the global economy in the last four years. if you look at the balance sheet expansions is this going to end badly all of the money coming
city, the second largest city in our state. i can't remember ever seeing the area so expansively underwater and i hope never see it again. and all of these cars were floating, some of them crashing into each other, rendered largely useless. and, of course, stopping a major thoroughfare for days in terms of anybody being able to get through. and if the images don't give you a sense of the destruction and the loss that families have suffered, then this next photograph encapsulate encapsule power of the storm to take away all that people worked for their whole lives. it's in the faces of the people i met. here in pleasantville, new jersey, which is right outside atlantic city, along a section there, the mayor of pleasantville took me to meet a series of residents whose homes had been ripped apart. so i'm standing outside of the person's home almost as if it was a doll house looking in. and i would love to have said that this poor gentleman, that it was only him, but it was an entire community of homes whose homes had been ripped apart. and you could see into their homes. and it show
in the county government had to coordinate and work with officials in city government. this louisville jefferson county crime commission was one of the best examples of cooperation between city and county government back in those days. that commission was the first of its kind to bring police officers and social workers together on behalf of kids. just one innovation ernie came up with back then was to make a if i were card phos as many kentucky kides as possible and send that card home for the child's parents to use to assist investigators in the awful vent the child ever went missing. ernie's work in kentucky established him has a national leader in his field as early as 1981. at that time no nationwide organization existed to share and distribute information on missing children. if a child was abducted and taken over a state line or even a county line, the chances that law enforcement in the new jurisdiction had all the information necessary to save that child were really quite small. ernie led the effort to lobby congress to establish laws so that police could talk to each other are across b
